If you fly in a plane in the next few years, you are statistically likely to be flying in one that contains 3D-printed parts. The Aerospace industry is a great example of utilization of 3D Printing / Additive Manufacturing (AM).

Not only OEMs, and suppliers are applying 3D Printing, but airlines are seeing the potential and are investing in 3D printing capabilities within their own facilities.

However there are some roadblocks to be taken, like the slow adoption of achieving airworthiness certification from authorities such as the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) and EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency).

The Conference program offers aerospace professionals the chance to learn about and to look at challenges / opportunities from different perspectives using Additive Manufacturing in their professional use.

Who should attend?
Any person who is involved in the value chain of creating / manufacturing aerospace products / services, from designer to engineer, from researcher to supplier, from toolmaker to software developer and from quality control to production. We invite you to visit the website to find out why you should attend the conference.
